SHOW PREVIEW: Chappo and Royal Teeth wsg Parade of Lights and Lights and Caves in The Pike Room on March 3, 2014

A triple bill of three up-and-coming bands comes to Pontiac’s Pike Room next Monday, March 3. Chappo, Royal Teeth, and Parade of Lights are touring the US relentlessly together this winter in support of new releases. Brooklyn based Psych-rockers, Chappo, are releasing their sophomore effort, Future Former Self, next Tuesday, March 4th, via their very own record label, Rouse Records. Their best known single, “Come Home” was a staple on Siriusxm’s Alt Nation, residing in their top 18 countdown for a lengthy 20 weeks. “Come Home” also garnered notoriety due to use in an Apple iPod Touch campaign. Pitchfork called the single “an excellently overstuffed garage psych sound.” Chappo have furthermore built up their fan base with opening stints for Of Montreal and Imagine Dragons amongst others.

Their new concept album, Former Future Self, tells the story of one man's journey to a black hole through a series of infectiously catchy tracks.” The upcoming album is a blend of folk rock, psychedelic rock, electronic pop and indie styled music. In a live setting, their psych-rock excellence is aided by costumes, confetti, props (including a ridiculously perfect psychedelic LED moon) and nonstop energy. Chappo have also built their reputation for releasing remixes which include Big Data’s “Dangerous” and Miley Cyrus’ inescapable “Wrecking Ball”, as well as regularly having their own work remixed. Chappo have worked the festival circuit playing Osheaga, Bonnaroo, Pop Montreal in the past and are already on the bill for this year’s SXSW. The insanely catchy, "I Don't Need The Sun", is the first single off of the new record. 

Royal Teeth are an indie-pop sextet from New Orleans. They released their debut album, Glow, in August of 2013 and their single “Wild” received a considerable amount of traction on alternative radio. They've played the Metro Detroit market a number of times over the past 2 years. They specialize in upbeat pop anthems that feature big choruses, a lot of percussion, and extremely catchy melodies. Their best known song, “Wild”, was licensed by State Farm for a nationwide commercial. Royal Teeth were signed by Los Angeles based label, Dangerbird Records, home of Silversun Pickups and Fitz and the Tantrums.

Alt-Electro band, Parade Of Lights, will open the show. The Los Angeles based outfit is comprised of Ryan Daly, Anthony Improgo, Michelle Ashley and Randy Schulte. Famed electronic record label, Astralworks, signed the band in 2013. The band cites M83, Daft Punk, Depeche Mode and U2 as some of their influences. Their single “We’re The Kids” was played frequently on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation in fall of 2013 and received EDM remixes from Adrian Lux and Cash Cash. Their new EP is slated to be released sometime this spring.
